Last week was a busy one for new music releases — especially for some of our favorite female pop stars.
On the latest episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), we discuss four of those new releases: Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Thot Shit,” Lorde‘s “Solar Power,” Doja Cat‘s “Need to Know” and Kylie Minogue‘s cover of Lady Gaga‘s “Marry the Night” from the upcoming Born This Way 10th-anniversary re-release.
For those first three releases, we also got a trio of eye-popping videos, from Megan getting revenge on a trolling senator to Lorde gallivanting on the beaches of New Zealand to Doja meeting an otherworldly stranger at an outer-space nightclub.
Listen to Katie & Keith break it all down on the new Pop Shop Podcast:
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on how Lil Baby and Lil Durk make a lil’ news at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, BTS’ “Butter” stays solid atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week, Bad Bunny’s new single debuts straight into the top 10 on the Hot 100, and Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” floats to No. 1 on the Pop Airplay chart.
